The Way Things Work
CD-Rom based on the book The Way Things Work by David Macaulay.
Are you curious about the way a computer, electric guitar, or video camera works? Then check out David Macaulay's The Way Things Work. This CD-ROM is for anyone who wants to see inside a television, telephone, or telescope, but doesn't want to get in trouble for taking things apart. You can meet inventors and find out how 150 machines work.
Have you ever seen a woolly mammoth flying, fire fighting, swimming, or catapulting? You will! Hilarious "home videos"--starring the comic Great Woolly Mammoth--help explain scientific principles.
